Spain had the pleasure of providing us with two of our favorite new bands in 2014, Hinds (formerly Deers) and MOURN. The latter have their debut self-titled LP coming out physically on February 17th via Captured Tracks (you can stream it over at Spotify). To lead us closer to that date, they have delivered a new video for “Your Brain Is Made of Candy” directed by Roger Guàrdia. You will see a boy who has blue liquid (aka candy) coming out of him. Watch below.

Video : Lxury : “Square 1″ (feat. Deptford Goth)

South London’s Lxury has his newest EP, Into The Everywhere, out now via the label Greco-Roman. The release is a interesting blend of electronic subgenres such as trance, house, and ambient woven into lush layers and textures. The most accessible track on the release might come in the form of “Square 1″ featuring the vocals of Deptford Goth, which we now have a video for. Directed by Mau Morgo, the visual is a CGI take on African funeral rituals. From Morgo:

“In the Dogon funeral ritual, the relationship between the dead and alive is made through dance, not words – there is nothing simpler than body language. (The video) starts with a presentation of the characters as if they were wooden African statues in a dark museum. Later when the ritual starts, the dance begins. The right hands represent the ones that are alive – they dance with the dead (left hands) – to guide them to a better place.” During the final moments, both come together, merging into one before disappearing – “the ritual has finished, everyone is in his place.”

London-based band Leave The Planet first came to our attention last year with their fluttering, new-wave vibes they cast on the “Coasts”/”Sarah, Where Are You” single. Today, they have announced another new single showcasing the songs “The Night is Ours” featuring Jack Eden and “Winter Sleep” available now via Kanine Records. The latter song was revealed with a sparkling, overcast-heavy new video directed and edited by Jack Milwaukee. Both songs are currently available to stream at their Bandcamp.

Video : Sarah P : “Moving On”

As many of you probably know, Sarah P left Keep Shelley in Athens to pursue other musical avenues last year. Since then, she has been dropping loose tracks into the world to reintroduce her to the world as a solo artist. “Moving On” serves as the first proper single, however. The song is “representing the new me”, according to Sarah, and “is an attitude towards life, it is a statement.” She worked with greek producer Nteibint on it and the finished products have a Chromatics vibe about it. You can watch the video below and read her full statement about the song here. Expect an EP from her in the coming months.

Video : Samaris : “Tibrá”

Silkidrangar, the LP from Icelandic three-piece Samaris, was an album that we really did not get a chance to dig into until late last year several months after its release. The atmospheric electronica of the and just seemed to resonate more during the colder months rather than the peak of summer. Regardless, they recently released a video for one of the highlights from it, “Tibrá”. The visual captures the mystical qualities of the song using muted, yet vibrant colors over shadowy figures and movements. You can view it below and purchase the album here courtesy of One Little Indian Records.
